Akhilesh Yadav’s PDA will get a blow

The PDA (Backward Dalit Tribal) slogan of SP chief Akhilesh Yadav can have the biggest impact in Ghazipur. Keeping this in view, BJP has worked to reach out to a large section of the population by giving tickets to backward caste Sangeets for Rajya Sabha. The number of Bind voters is also quite high in Mau, Azamgarh, Jaunpur, Bhadohi, Mirzapur and Sonbhadra. In such a situation, efforts will be made to influence these seats also. BJP wants to win Ghazipur Lok Sabha seat. Preparations for this have been started with the help of local leaders. Those leaders of the district whose political sphere is elsewhere also. He has been asked to pay special focus on Ghazipur. Among them Dinesh Lal Yadav Nirahua MP Azamgarh. Mahendra Nath Pandey MP Chandauli. Dayashankar Mishra Dayalu, Minister of State in UP Government and some other important names are included. Especially after Manoj Sinha was made the Governor of Jammu and Kashmir, BJP was in a period of emptiness in the district. In such a situation, BJP will strengthen itself in a big way by bringing the very grassroots leader Sangeeta Balwant to Rajya Sabha.

Sangeeta Balwant is close to Manoj Sinha

Sangeeta Balwant is considered close to Manoj Sinha. He has a lot of influence among other castes also. Before the opposition zeroes in on any leader, an attempt has been made to woo this population with the help of Sangeeta.

Whose name was ‘Lok Sabha Pravas’, in this program BJP National President JP Nadda himself reached Ghazipur. He addressed a public meeting at ITI grounds. There was enthusiasm among the workers to strengthen the chances of victory. During this time he also participated in the program to honor ex-servicemen.

In January 2019, Sadhna Singh came into limelight by using abusive language on BSP supremo Mayawati. According to political experts, Sadhna Singh’s image in Chandauli district is that of a bold leader. She has been clashing head-on with the opposition for her sharp arguments and organization. Sadhna Singh, who once came into limelight by giving a statement against BSP chief Mayawati, does not delay in taking on the SPs in the district. At a time when the MLAs of all four BJP seats live in Lucknow or Varanasi, giving Rajya Sabha ticket to Sadhna Singh is a very good initiative.

Sadhna also has a place among Muslim voters

In Chandauli, BJP is in need of a leader who can work on the ground. Sadhna also needed this opportunity. Sadhna Singh started politics as a District Panchayat member. After that, he worked in the District Trade Board for a long time. He is considered to have better penetration among women voters as well as Muslim voters. In such a situation, the party fears that if Sadhna gets the responsibility, the organization will also benefit from it on a larger level. Many political experts of the district also mention the rebellious attitude of Sadhna Singh. It is said that Sadhna Singh was regretting not getting the ticket since 2022. However, she made peace and continued working for the party. But for some time now she had become continuously active in Chandauli Lok Sabha. Started visiting and meeting people in all the assemblies. From the expression of Sadhna Singh, it was believed that whether she gets the ticket from the party or not, she can contest from Chandauli Lok Sabha. In such a situation, the party realized this internally and decided to train Sadhna and send her to Rajya Sabha.
